    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Jul 3, 2013

    Five Weapons is a story with a lot of heart and a lot more action. It's something fresh and different, and luckily it looks like we might be getting some more. Robinson will have a lot to live up to with whatever comes next, but I think he's up for the challenge. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno Jul 3, 2013

    Jimmie Robinson has laid out a beautifully illustrated story that has more charm and wit than bite. Yes these are teen assassins but Robinson plays the wise guy angle, it's all very tongue in cheek. This is a comic, we know it, he knows it and the characters are fluid and given a fun life force. I still felt for the characters, especially the young decoy "Tyler". With this book coming to a close this issue is not for new readers. You can look forward to the collected edition soon and I hope enough of us buy this story to get another chapter to enjoy. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jul 3, 2013

    FIVE WEAPONS has grown on me a lot over the months. This title took me by surprise and I simply couldn't help but fall in love with thanks to its vibrant visuals, energetic cast and engrossing plot. Naturally, its final chapter comes as a double-edged sword to me -- I'm delighted to get answers yet saddened because it means saying goodbye. Thankfully, it delivers when it comes to answering (most) of our questions and remains every bit as sharp as the previous four issues. And the best part of it all? Robinson leaves the door open for a sequel and I sincerely hope Image gives him the green light to create one! Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Jul 5, 2013

    I was nervous for this book, each month I've looked forward to Five Weapons, but this story could have so easily been rushed and ruined in it's final chapter. Thankfully that wasn't the case, it was handled nicely with everything being revealed and settled up by the end. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 5, 2013

    "Five Weapons" #5 concludes a fun first storyline, and if you haven't read it yet, I'd definitely recommend scooping up all five issues when you get a chance. It's a smart series, one where the strength isn't so much in the concept but rather the execution. I'm glad that Robinson's coming back for more in a few months. I'll definitely be back, too.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 10, 2013

    A hopelessly rushed affair with little credibility, it's best to describe this mini as a bunch of good ideas with suitable art, but nothing more. Read Full Review
